We didnt have Dog Rock in our itinerary but found it by accident. Tip: Best way to find the 'dawg' is to park in the Woolworths supermarket car park and walk towards the back of the plaza (not the main road)

Just a rock that look like the head of a dog. Nothing much. Just a photo stop. But cute and a wonder of what nature can do.

This was really just a 5 minute stop to snap some pics of us our dog with Dog Rock in the background. But very cool nonetheless.

Drove around the corner and could not believe my eyes. Had to go around the block so the navigator could have a look ! A later visit to the supermarket without the caravan and photos were taken of this marvelous nature feature. the Black and white collar is a hit. A must see when in Albany.
